1963-64 Parkhurst

For its final set, 1963-64 Parkhurst featured a team-based design that was much more unusual than any that had been used in a hockey set before. At the same time, there was an emphasis given to the two Canadian teams, with two cards for nearly every player.

1963-64 Parkhurst Hockey card fronts featured a player picture superimposed against a team-specific background design. Detroit Red Wings were shown with an American flag in the background, regardless of that player's actual birth nation. Toronto Maple Leafs were placed in front on the Red Ensign that served as the national flag at the time. Montreal Canadiens weren't given any flag. Instead, they had parallel bars. Backs feature the player's name across the top, followed by bilingual vital stats and a lifetime NHL record. The rest of the card was for one of three send-in prizes: a tabletop hockey game, a replica Stanley Cup or an autographed puck.

While 1963-64 Parkhurst Hockey was largely broken up into team subsets, every Montreal player and coach received two cards. All but three Maple Leafs also received two cards, and each Detroit Red Wings player was featured on a single card.

Key rookies in the 99-card set include Cesare Maniago, Red Berenson, Alex Faulkner, John Ferguson and Jacques LaPerriere.
